07:40 EDTDISH, FOXA, TWX, TWC, DTV, SNI, CMCSAMore execs voice concerns over Comcast-TWC merger, WSJ says
DirecTV (DTV) and Dish Network (DISH) have already come out strongly against Comcast's (CMCSA) planned takeover of Time Warner Cable (TWC) and nervousness among a number of other companies, including TV network owners and small cable operators, is surfacing, said The Wall Street Journal. 21st Century Fox (FOXA) president Chase Carey told an investment conference that he expects competition in broadband to be a major factor in the merger review, while Time Warner (TWX) CEO Jeff Bewkes said that "in the long run there are some questions on competition" and he expects the government to "make sure the appropriate conditions are in place." Some industry executives, notably including Scripps Networks Interactive (SNI) CFO Joseph NeCastro, have played down concerns, the report noted. Reference Link

08:25 EDTCMCSANetflix on pace to have larger audience than all networks, FBR says
FBR Capital analyst Barton Crockett says that while Netflix (NFLX) is not rated by Nielsen (NLSN), the 10B hours streamed in Q1 reported by the company are equivalent to having a 24-hour rating of 2.6, on par with Disney's (DIS) ABC and Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. And while ratings at broadcasters are falling on average, Netflix is growing its ratings at a 40%-plus compound annual rate, Crockett tells investors this morning in a research note. At this pace, Netflix in a year will have a larger 24-hour audience than all broadcast networks, he contends. Regarding last night's 7-for-1 stock split announcement, Crockett says the move reflects management's confidence in the "durability of the recent stock surge." For perspective, three years ago Netflix shares were around $60. This morning they are trading up $18.69 to $699.88 in the pre-market. Crockett has an Outperform rating on the streaming service with a $900 price target.
